I worked at Dollar General full-time for more than a year

Pros

The company itself has a wonderful mission; most benefits are great. Products are cheap and most of the time, items are on sale and they are actually items that you use often.

Cons

There are no employee discounts, Store manager's opinion is solely what determines your growth in the company, not how hard you work. Employees are overworked and under paid. Lead Sales Associates and Management do not get any type of uninterrupted meal breaks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to your employees. If your employees aren't happy, then neither is your customers. Give your Lead sales associates and Management team an uninterrupted meal break.

    I have been working at Dollar General full-time

    Pros

    Small town atmosphere. You really get to know your customers. Potential to grow and move up in the company.

    Cons

    Company does not offer enough payroll to run the stores effectively. Work way more than 60 hours a week and you cant get everything accomplished. No work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start putting money into your stores. They are falling apart. Dont skimp on the floor cleanings and general maintenance. You cant expect your store managers to be able to do everything if they cant work people more than 24 hours a week.
